Children with speech difficulties


Most of our children at Wellington Community Primary School who show speech difficulties, will have seen an NHS Speech and Language Therapist at some time within the last 6 months.

You will have received a report, sent to your home by the therapist which will summarise their progress and current needs and it will also have some targets and some 'general ideas for support'.

Please look back through these reports and keep practising all the targets given in the past.  It is important that these targets are kept in mind and your chid does not loose skills they have built up

Here are some other ideas:


The online program, SpeechLinks, that we use extensively in school for children with speech difficulties has made contact with school to tell us that they have made resources available to parents for their homelearning.


To support your children's speech, language and communication needs, they have fast tracked the launch of their new Parent Portal to help with this. The site will be live from Friday 20th March and will provide parents with FREE speech and language advice, resources and activities.  


The site can be found at

Speak to the animal and it repeats back what you have said in a high pitched voice.



This is good for students who are reluctant to speak, or who want to hear themselves speak, or if you want to encourage students to make noises with their mouths that they can hear repeated.


This app is for developing understanding of verbs by using videos of an alien acting them out



This is a fun app which is motivating for students to use. They point to a verb and the alien will act them out in a silly way. There is also a way for the student to say what you want the alien to do and it will act it out – there are roughly 40 verbs.
